Western Maryland to be Featured at BIO International Convention
Date:5/4/2010

k" title="Hagerstown Community College">Hagerstown Community College now offers a Biotechnology Associate of Applied Science degree that is helping prepare local students for biotech careers. Graduates are prepared to either begin work as technicians or to transfer to a higher biotech degree program elsewhere. Some local graduates have started their own companies through the Technical Innovation Center. “Our research has shown that biotech companies like to cluster around one another, so it’s very important for us to start to grow our own biotech companies here in Washington County,” said Tim Troxell, executive director of the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission.

The Hagerstown-Washington EDC is actively promoting the region at trade shows targeting the biotechnology industry. The EDC exhibited at last year’s BIO International Convention in San Diego, California, and plans to attend this year’s show, held May 3-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

A Crossroads of Commerce Ideal for Biotech Companies

Located at the intersection of two of the Mid-Atlantic’s largest interstates, just minutes from four states, and only an hour from the Baltimore and Washington, DC metro areas, Hagerstown, Maryland and surrounding Washington County have become a favorite location for a wide variety of businesses. The outstanding quality of life, the nation’s best schools, and low traffic coupled with economic advantages like reasonable labor and real estate costs make Hagerstown and Washington County an obvious choice.

Washington County is known for a healthy, pro-business climate. With incentives and financing programs from a variety of sources, businesses get significant assistance to open, expand or relocate in the area. Company goals are achieved by working with partners and developing custom programs to maximize benefits for each business.
